    Wheyyyy!

    After my weigh in this morning with LLC I realised my new BMI falls just into the "Overweight" catagory. By about .03 - BUT it's still there!!
    :talk017:

    I've been classed as obese since I was about 10 years olds, and today is my first day as a non-obese person!

    It's a bizarrly amazing feeling! HA! I've never in a million years thought I would ever be anything over than obese and I am so happy that I have taken the step to FINALLY make this change.

    Motivation much?! :8855:

    Great news Em!

    Who'd have thought you'd be happy to be overweight? :D

    I can't wait until I am classed as overweight instead of obese! Another 12lbs to go!

    So who cares

    If other people pretend they can't see any difference after you've lost a stone.
    You know and that's the main thing.
    I had so much to lose, I was 21.5 stone when i started, no-one did notice until about 2-3stone in. But perseverance pays off in the end.
    stick with it Em.
